Adam Balijagic named WES young artist of the month

A kindergarten student at Westmere Elementary School, Adam has demonstrated the Artist Habit Of Mind: Stretch and Explore. In his sculpture of a bird in a habitat, Adam extended the assignment beyond just a nest to include bird eggs and rocks. It was difficult for Adam to balance the eggs and rocks on the nest at first, but he kept trying new ways until he was able to
succeed. In art class Adam often tries new art techniques and learns from his mistakes. He knows sometimes it is challenging to make art but he doesn’t give up. He also knows that sometimes mistakes can lead to new solutions in art problem-solving. Great work Adam!
